Right now it is Fall here in Utah, which means apple season! We are lucky to have some local apple orchards nearby, and a local distributor has been selling freshly picked orchard apples, for $0.50/pound! So I have stocked up on Gala and Granny Smith apples, buying 34 lbs for just $17. Now what to do with them?
Traditional food preservation recipes call for lots of sugar. Commercially preserved apples, that have been either dried or canned, also generally contain significant amounts of sugar, corn syrup, or both. Over the next few posts, I will show you different ways to preserve your own apples in a healthy fashion, preserving maximum nutrition, without loading them with sugar! I will share with you how to make some of my favorite, storable snacks with apples.
